In Ubuntu, there is a modified non-proprietary Nvidia driver preinstalled. This driver helps me get the full native resolution (1920x1020) of my flatscreen displayed without errors, while my Graphics Card (Geforce FX 5200) only supports DVI-resolutions up to 1440x900. This is a very cool thing.

My question is: Is there such a kind of driver also for Windows XP? I've already tried the omega drivers, but 1920x1020 looks awful on Windows.

Some say this driver works for XP and that resolution.

sadly, this driver produces the same effect :< –  ptikobj Feb 12 '11 at 18:14
Sometimes changing the refresh rate will enable other resolutions. –  Moab Feb 12 '11 at 22:01
